Women in Rail was created to improve diversity in the UK rail industry through providing networking opportunities and support for all women within the sector, encourage undertakings and stakeholders to adopt diversity as a business strategy and devising initiatives aimed at positioning rail as an attractive career choice for young people.
A cross between ‘It’s a Knockout’ and ‘Krypton Factor’, the event consists of a series of fun physical and mental challenges – undertaken by teams with a gender balance of 50% female and 50% male.
The Big Rail Diversity Challenge will provide participants with a unique opportunity to network, team build whilst fundraising. The event will deliver fun gender balanced team challenges showcasing women performing in roles that are perceived as ‘non-traditional’.
The event will support Women in Rail.
